Jonathan Krist Foundation

I had the wonderful opportunity of working with the Jonathan Krist Foundation and capturing images for their event. The foundation is managed by Bob and Peggy Krist who are both truly wonderful people and serve the community locally and internationally. More information about this foundation can be found here.If the name, Bob Krist jolts you, its because he is THE one and only Bob Krist, renowned photographer for such esteemed publications as National Geographic and the Smithsonian and most of all a real gentleman. Being asked to shoot an event for Bob felt like LeBron asking me to take the last free throw, with a second to spare - or Holdsworth asking me to take his solo while he got himself a cup of tea!!!! It was a lot of fun as I shot with available light with the D700 and D300 - using the 70-200mm 2.8 and the 24-70mm 2.8. I got to hear the amazing Jazz Band from Camden and they were in High School. They swung hard and grooved tight!!
P.S Bob has a new blog going. Do check it out.
Here are my favorite images from the afternoon.

Swiss Alps Sunset Pano

The last pano I posted reminded me of my favorite pano shot in the Swiss Alps, shot off our balcony, capturing a Sunset.

First Day Of Spring!!

I guess there are some benefits to waking up early. I made this capture this morning. It was a series of shots that were stitched together.

M├ętisse at Zestys

Keep an eye (and ear) out for this band that sparkles with Jazz, Fusion and Latin grooves. Of course it just so happens that my cousin Anil happens to be the keyboard player. Arthur on Bass, Ben on Drums and Laura on vocals.
